OVERALL 

John John Takes Yet Another Turn Atop The Leader Board

Surfing's golden boy has done it again, holding down his second winning streak--the first being briefly interrupted by Chippa's January victory--for the fifth month running. For those of you keeping score, this means Florence has tackled 10 out of the past 11 months of magazines--an impressive feat, to put it lightly. For his part, Dylan Graves has been creeping up the leader board, landing in second this month after tearing up the cover of Surfing. Bruce Irons, on the other hand, is learning to live with bronze, after Graves' swift silver medal steal. On the edit front, JJF and Graves once again nab their respective first and second place posts, while Craig Anderson steps into third. After adding up ad space, John John once again takes the top spot, knocking last month's victor Julian Wilson back into second and Jordy Smith back into third. Behind the lens, Jimmicane has relinquished his temporary title back to its previous owner, and Carey is once again back on top. Jimmicane didn't stray far, however, waiting patiently in second as Wilson continues his stranglehold on third. Channel Islands and Quiksilver stand strong in the land of Logos, with Hurley snagging the bronze out of Volcom's hands and rounding out June's Logo Meter podium.
